hamas leaders just yesterday night, and we talked a little bit about that. because when you talk to defense experts who are looking at what people have here and what hamas, for example, has here as far as weaponry goes, the main thought is that they have more and more sophisticated weapons that they've been able to smuggle in, for example, through the egyptian border and under the tunnels and weapons that have been given to them in part by iran. now, when we talked about that, they wouldn't come out and say, yes, we've been getting more and more weapons from iran, but they did say they did have more sophisticated weapons but certainly nothing compared to what israel had, and they said they knew that they would pay a heavy price, a much heavier price than israel would pay if this turned into a full-scale war, tom. >> all right, sara sidner, magnificent work there. appreciate your words tonight. the situation, of course, is very, very tense right along the gaza border with israel.
